WW1 British Empire Mural
Earlier in the year ACT members attended a number of seminars at Queens University on the contribution to war from those around the British Empire.
The stories of the sacrifice given by those from many different nationalities, religions and races were no different than the sacrifices made by our own countrymen which we commemorate often.
It was decided by the Greater Shankill ACT Area Action Gro…up to design and erect a mural to pay tribute to those from around the British Empire who fought and died for our freedom.
The mural was unveiled at Northumberland Street a short time ago by Philip Orr, Professor John Brewer and Dr William Mitchell. Thanks to everyone who attended and also to Philip Orr who will be giving a talk on soldiers from the British Empire at the ACT Initiative Building.
Christmas on the Shankill
Well done to all involved in brining Christmas to the Shankill Road; the BEAT Carnival, WBACS and Unite the Union who paid for the tree and decorations with support from the NIHE. Ultimately, our congratulations to our Greater Shankill ACT organiser and the other volunteers who made this event possible!
Wishing you a Merry Christmas from all at ACT
Kill Your Speed, Not a Child
Greater Shankill ACT has taken its ‘Kill Your Speed Not a Child” campaign to Edenderry Nursery School. ACT’s Project Director, Dr William Mitchell, attended the school in November to donate hi-vis vests for parents and children. This campaign is supported and welcomed by the Principal, Nancy McGrath (centre), along with, Joleen and Christian Strain, Zoe and Lacie Dawkes and Nikki and Willow McCormick (pictured from left to right).
ACT would like to thank the Greater Shankill ACT Area Organiser, Steven Pollock and other members for their voluntary efforts in developing this campaign throughout our communities across the province.
ACT would like to thank our community volunteers and all those who supported the Ladies’ Coffee Morning and Men’s Coffee Evening to raise funds for Macmillan. Together we raised £540 for the charity! ACT would also like to thank Dr John Kyle, Dr Fiona Bloomer, Professor Ann Marie Gray and Patricia Lewsley-Mooney for making the events meaningful and interesting with their presentations. Thank you to all!!
